Asked by LanceHaverkamp on 2017-06-22

Curve25519 option is missing, looked in forms & bug reports for "Curve25519", but not seeing anyone reporting, or asking about this, so here goes:

So as you see, the elliptic curve options start numbering with 2). But option 1) should be Curve25519

What's going on here?
